What You Should Know
There was once a time when supplement companies trying to break into the weight loss niche had to bring their “A” game. Supplements were packed with just the right stimulants to make heart rates elevate without causing harmful side effects. There are still supplement companies out there will to dedicate time to the formulation of great weight loss products, but colon cleansing companies are not among them. Colon cleansers like Oxy-Powder, claim to increase weight loss simply because they push extra water and waste from the body for a short period of time.
List of Ingredients
Magnesium, Organic Germanium, Natural Citric Acid, Organic Gum Acacia and Kosher Certified Vegetarian Capsules.
Dieters may note from the first ingredient list glance that Oxy-Powder does not contain oxygen. There is no way to pack oxygen in a powdered form for ingestion. Instead, the supplement is formulated with ingredients that are supposed to convert to oxygen during digestion.
Magnesium is the main ingredient in Oxy-Powder. Magnesium is often packaged with calcium because calcium causes constipation when taken alone. Why pack Magnesium then, because Magnesium is a laxative that eases the constipation effects. Oxy-Powder claims organic germanium oxygenates organs. There are no clinical trials to back up this claim, or the claim of any oxygen based benefits.
There are research studies listed for Oxy-Powder, however. The company has submitted its formula for testing in the field of toxicity, constipation and irritable bowel syndrome. None of the listed tests has anything to do with oxygen or the effect of oxygen on health, cleansing or weight loss.
Oxy-Powder sells for $24.95 per 60 capsules and $44.95 per 120 capsules. The 120 capsule bottle saves the dieter $4.95. With direct ordering supported via the official website, the final cost would also have shipping and handling added.
- Cleansing can produce short-term weight loss.
- Ingredients are listed online.
- Dieters can order from the official Oxy-Powder website.
- Oxy-Powder is priced comparably to other cleansing products.
- The listed clinical trials have nothing to do with oxygen or cleansing.
- No claims are supported with research.
- Cleansing is not the same as weight loss or burning fat.
There are many colon cleansing products on the market and Oxy-Powder is no different. Oxy-Powder claims to use oxygen to power the cleansing process, but none of the listed studies support that claim. Magnesium is the primary cleanser in Oxy-Powder and not oxygen. Magnesium is commonly used to deter constipation associated with calcium supplementation. When calcium is taken out of the picture, magnesium can cause diarrhea and potential dehydration. Essentially, magnesium is a laxative and using laxatives to lose weight is not a healthy approach to weight loss.
